Their Code of Navajo

On the blazing fields of battle

Of our second world war,

Some soldiers wielded weapons

No one ever tried before,

They used their native language

Like a gun against the foe,

Helping turn the tide of war

With their code of Navajo.

 

Their code of Navajo

Never left a single clue,

From the hell of Iwo Jima

To the siege of Peleliu,

They left their reservation

For the Devil's devastation,

Saving men they didn't know

With their code of Navajo.

 

As we searched in vain for ciphers

That no enemy could learn,

A missionary's son would

Know exactly where to turn,

The Navajo had taught him

How their ancient words combined,

To produce their mother tongue

Carried only in their mind.

 

When you thank the ones who freed the world

So many years ago,

Don't forget those unsung heroes

With their code of Navajo.

 

Their code of Navajo

Never left a single clue,

From the hell of Iwo Jima

To the siege of Peleliu,

They left their reservation

For the Devil's devastation,

Saving men they didn't know

With their code of Navajo
